Heidi Kummli's Profile

Heidi's beadwork is an expression of herself, and her feelings for our Mother Earth and
the creatures upon her. Through researching Native American beadwork techniques

and remembers making jewelry even as a young child. Heidi's great grandmother was a Chippewa Indian that did beadwork for Vaudeville. Heidi feels this gift was passed down to her. She currently lives on 12
acres west of Boulder, Colorado with her husband Gregg, and their son Benjamin age 17.
